Main Street Bethlehem returns to Burnet


Favorite Main Street Bethlehem returns to downtown Burnet

Special to the Bulletin

This Christmas, visit Bethlehem in Burnet, Texas, as the ancient city of Christ's birth comes alive again as it has each year from the time of Main Street Bethlehem's first presentation in 1993.

Feel the anticipation of Joseph and Mary approaching the gates, urgency quickening their steps. Pick your way through transients, peddlers, the crippled, and aged in the town's fringe. Experience the presence of animals as they affect all aspects of life in that time: camels, donkeys, sheep, goats, chickens, and doves.

Explore the narrow streets to faint strains of ancient music and savor the smells of fresh goat butter, campfires, and hot bread. Then immerse yourself in the din of the marketplace – revelers in the tavern, shouted insults to and from the Roman oppressors, merchants, craftspeople, taxpayers and beggars, all seeking money, or position, or revenge.
